Just in time for the Annual Meeting, the sixth edition of Your Pregnancy and Childbirth: Month to Month is here! Women read three to five books during their pregnancy, and this valuable resource from the experts at ACOG contains everything your patient needs to know about pregnancy and childbirth, from preconception to labor and delivery and beyond. Easy-to-understand text reinforces your guidance, giving your patient the most up-to-date information available. Information is presented in a balanced, reassuring tone to help patients make informed decisions about their preconception care, pregnancy care, labor and delivery, the postpartum period, and beyond.
